I love this place. Tried a half dozen different curries and loved them all. Generous portions and wonderful presentation. Staff are attentive and always super friendly. After a meal I buy their curry paste so I can make more at home.

Several different kinds are available. Servings are heavy on the rice, easy on the curry, but it's a very fair meal for the price. I've been a couple of times and would happily go again. Not a fancy place, but a good meal.

This place is a great dining choice in Pacific Beach. They offer a variety of curries - vegan, gluten free, & vegetarian options available. They'll adjust the spice level to your liking.
